Carolina Reaper is the hottest pepper in the world as ranked by Guinness Records, with an average Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) of 1.5 million…that’s 200 times as hot as the Jalapeno Pepper! It is a cross between a Ghost Pepper and a Red Habanero Pepper. This fiery red, 2-inch fruit has a unique little stinger tail. Flavor is surprisingly good if you can get past the heat. Height: up to 5 feet. Spread: up to 4 feet. Days to harvest: 95. NOTE: Extreme caution should be used when handling seeds and picking fruits.
